Wild Card Sunday DFS Single Game Breakdown: Steelers at Chiefs

The Steelers will be at full strength, with the only questionable injury designation being Najee Harris, who was injured but came back in last week's win against the Ravens. The Steelers have an implied total of 16.5 points and have scored less than 20 points in four of their last five games. Ben Roethlisberger has had a rough stretch of games throwing for under 200 yards in three of the last four games and not averaging over six yards per attempt since Week 14. The only positive is he has a completion percentage of 65% on the year, and with the increased passing volume as underdogs, you can get high reception totals.

The Chiefs will be without Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and last year in the playoffs, we saw Darrel Williams have a 17 touch game in his absence. The Chiefs have won nine of their last ten games, and a lot of this credit should go to the defense, which has held seven opponents under 20 points while forcing 22 combined turnovers. Patrick Mahomes has yet to lose to a quarterback not named Tom Brady in the playoffs and is a 13 point favorite at home. Mahomes started the year off, turning the ball over at a high rate, but in the last five weeks has one turnover while throwing at least two touchdowns, a 71% completion percentage, and 8.1 yards per attempt.
